The Nigerian army has reacted to news that soldiers of Operation Ayem Akpatuma (Cat Race) allegedly beat a 27-years-old man, Yusufa Haruna, to death at Mbamga in Sarduana local government area of the Taraba state last week.
Read the statement from the army below.
RE: SOLDIERS ALLEGEDLY BEAT 27 YEARS OLD MAN TO DEATH IN TARABA
The attention of the Nigerian Army has been drawn to newspaper reports particularly an online medium, sunnews online.com of 2 April 2018 where it was alleged that soldiers deployed on Exercise AYEM AKPATUMA beat 27 years old man, Yusuf Haruna to death at Mbanga in Sardauna Local Government Area of Taraba State. This allegation is misleading and untrue.
The Nigerian Army wishes to put the record straight to avoid misinforming the general public.
Contrary to this allegation, the deceased was a notorious youth who lived in Mbara quarters of Mbanga Community. He was known to be engaging in all forms of criminal activities. He was apprehended by troops deployed on Exercise AYEM AKPATUMA and while making efforts to hand him over to the police for questioning, he however escaped from custody. The soldiers were later informed that he died at the Family Health Care Hospital Mbanga.
The deceased was not beaten nor tortured as reported by some section of the media. The deceased was said to be an epileptic patient according to a source from the Family Health Care Hospital Management.
The Nigerian Army wishes to caution the media to always cross checked their fact before rushing to the press and be objective in their reportage of security related issues.
Furthermore, the general public is advised to report suspected movements in their areas to the nearest security agency for prompt action.
You are please requested to disseminate this information to the general public through your medium.
Thanks for your usual cooperation.

All they know is how to demonstrate how powerful they are, but they will be afraid when there is battle, and they will run or bow, if certain countries need more land from Nigeria. Grin Grin Grin

So we should believe you. Why has he not died before the time of his arrest? He may be a criminal but to say that he escaped from detention and later died without your men touching him is the height of irresponsibility. In fact, our military are gradually turning to the Nigerian Police in terms of dishing out falsehood.
